Don’t touch me

Don’t talk to me about it

Don’t touch me

Don’t talk to me never again

Everything has been said, all the hurt has been done; there’s no need to talk, no need to suffer: “I don’t feel anything, all sensation is closed to me; I saw you put the needle in, I can still see everything”. All you can do is let yourself drop to the liquid that will carry you down: “Take me to a quiet place, throw me in the water; watch the bubbles surface as I’m slowly sinking under”.

This subtly disquieting track was released as the seventh song on Touch (1983).
